The Writing Crew


Here are some pics of my fam, The Writing Crew, as requested by Obi:

(the three random chicks on the left side aren't part of the fam, they just jumped into the shot)

Acting a fool at the Black Writer's Alliance Conference held in Dallas, 2001

These are the Fellas of the Writing Crew..all very handsome, all very talented...The Fool I spoke about the other day is in the yellow tie.... if you notice in all the pics, he's usually surrounded by women...he thinks he's a mack... (lol!)

My girl Jude and I celebrating my Gold Pen Award win for my book Passion, Pride, and Politickin'...

Here he is again, chillin with me and JA at the LACMA Jazz Event, in Los Angeles, 2003. And by the way, after he read my post, he told us all to 'leave him the fuck alone.' And he hasn't even called me since I've been sick. Punk!

Enjoy. I'm out, ya'll.

Update: Twisted Genius of the Writing Crew has just started his blog. Check him out and see what we all have to put up with. Love you, fool.

Uhhhh, not for nuthin', was there any WRITING going on at that conference?!? What were you writing, drink recipes? Was there an emcee droppin rhymes like "throw your pens in the air/and wave em like you just don't care/if you just finished your manuscript/somebody say oh yea!" If a guy at this "conference" asked for your digits and you wan't feelin him, would you give him a phony number and your pen name?

I ain't hatin...I'm just sayin

Supa said...

HA ha anonymous!! Yes, we handled biz (attended seminars, participated in poetry slams), the pics here are the AFTER HOUR festivities!
